Two months after Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President of the United States, never-Trumper, Rick Wilson, who identifies as a Republican strategist and media consultant appeared on MSNBC’s “All In,” where he referred to Trump supporters as “crazy people” on the “alt-right.” Wilson, who calls himself a Republican, is also a contributor to left-leaning Politico, the formerly conservative turned leftist IJReview, and the far-left Daily Beast.
Truth in Media revealed the disturbing rant by Wilson, who criticized people who he called “alt-right” supporters of Trump. “Now, the screamers and the crazy people on the alt-right as they call it, you know, who love Donald Trump, who have plenty of Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons.”
“But the fact of the matter is,” Wilson continued, “most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime. They’re not real and political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.”
Yesterday, during Joy Reid’s MSNBC morning show, Rick Wilson discussed the possibility of a Trump impeachment. His bizarre rant started by making a sick and twisted comparison of President Trump to O.J. Simpson, claiming the only difference is, “O.J. got away with it.”
During his commentary, MSNBC showed images of four commentators and their host, Joy Reid. None of the four guests cracked a smile when Wilson compared Trump to O.J., but when he explained to Democrats his strategy would be “pursuing the death of a thousand cuts,” saying he would be “making the body count of people of in his administration that you have to drag in front of the cameras—we live in a 24 hour social media and cable environment, where this will become ‘must see’ broadcasting.” Wilson continued his rant while Joy Reid and two of her guests were doubled over in laughter, “you wanna drag this thing out, you wanna raise the pain level. You wanna increase the body count,” Wilson said as he laughed along with the panel.
The former Goerge H.W. Bush field director probably couldn’t find a legitimate Republican who would hire him, but Wilson, who continues to refer to himself as a “Republican strategist” is quite popular in far-left circles, and failing cable networks like MSNBC love nothing more than to include the “Republican Strategist” tag under his image as he trashes our President on their network.
